2. The Accident Occurred During a Test Drive

TMZ reports:

Sources close to Paul tell us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins.

Apparently, two people were killed in the crash, including Walker. The Santa Clarita Valley Signal writes:

The single-car crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Hercules Street near Constellation Road in the Rye Canyon Business Park, fire officials said … The red Porsche was reduced to unrecognizable twisted metal in the single-car crash.

A witness reports:

Him and his buddy, his brother in arms at heart just decided to joyride, take a spin. Something we all do. We’re all car enthusiasts. … We’re all here driving, enjoying each other, and God must’ve needed help,” said Antonio Holmes, who said he was a friend of Walker … We all heard from our location (the accident). It’s a little difficult to know what it was. Someone called it in and said it was a vehicle fire … We all ran around and jumped in cars and grabbed fire extinguishers and immediately went to the vehicle. It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried. We went through fire extinguishers.

5. Some Sources Are Claiming Walker’s Death to Be a Hoax

While, the news of Walker’s death spreads, there are a few sources that claim this news is a hoax. We were crossing our fingers, but Paul Walker has unfortunately passed away. A man from the town where the accident occurred posted this online:

So I work in Santa Clarita at an automotive performance shop and a good customer just came from Paul’s shop, AE (Always Evolving) where they were having a car show. It seems Paul went for a ride in a guys Porsche and they ended up around a phone pole, the car burst onto flames and rumour has it Paul is dead. I hope he got it wrong but he insists it was Paul. I’m reluctant to post this being just hearsay, but the guy who informed us is a wealthy car enthusiast that just pulled up in his Maserati and nothing to gain from a lie, and has video on his phone of the burning car. If it does turn out to be true, damn… RIP Paul.

Unfortunately, this is not a hoax and the beloved actor has, in fact, died. Universal Pictures has released a statement in regards to Walker’s passing:

All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the ‘Fast and Furious’ films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.


We send our love and thoughts to those who knew and loved the actor, as well as his many fans.
